After the death of my pug on Christmas Eve, I wrote a blog entry talking about how much I’ll miss the little guy and how great it’ll be to have him waiting for me on the other side. Well, our resident poet Joseph P. Martino from Millburn read that entry and provided us with some verses to enjoy. Pets mean so much to so many people and Mr. Martino managed to capture that emotion very well in his poem. So please enjoy his latest offering on the site: Angels With Four Legs.
Angels with four legs
Though they may not have wings to fly
Back and forth between the earth and sky.
They never question the reason why?
But, will give of their life, if do or die.
When we’re in trouble they never run or hide
For this I am thankful and full of pride.
They aid and comfort the disabled and sick.
They even employ a special trick.
If the need arises, they will even give your face a lick.
When you come home after a hard day’s work
They just want you to pet them; it’s their only quirk.
For no matter what time you arrive home at night,
They never fail to greet you, what a beautiful sight!
So be kind and loving to the very end.
For this four-legged angel is your very best friend,
And will always remain faithful to the very end.

Thanks, Mr. Martino, for providing some comforting words in a very depressing situation.
